This theme has hardly any connections to the 2008 line, apart from the title ... it was a cool theme, but it does seem to be a little bit more focused on the augmented apps that you can combine with the Lego, rather than the Lego itself. You don't *have* to use the apps, but without them, the point of the sets may lose a little.
OK ... I have no idea who any of these characters are. I've checked my recordings, there's a lot of background noise and I didn't say any of the names outloud, although there was a mention of a racoon and Peter Quill?! The lady also said the main 5 characters are represented. Sorry I can't be more specific. None of the sets were named either, although they were priced at £20, £45 and £70
On the Xmen set there was a new Magneto, Wolverine and a Storm figures.
also the Hobbit sets.
So, I have no real interest in LOTR or the Hobbit. I did have the sets presented to me, but it really didn't go into my brain, because it was like they were talking a foreign language at me (you know, when you try to explain Star Wars to a non SW fan!).
Again, there is a lot of background noise on my recording and the presenters voice is very quiet, so here's what I can glean from it.
There was a minifig that would glow in the dark (the Witch King?) in the £11.99 set, that also came with two other figs (that I have no notes on).
There was a Lake Town Bell Tower set (name subject to change) which included Bain (£34.99 i think)
A £59.99 Battle Of The Five Armies set, comes with a few figs, one of them perhaps (I had to google what I thought she said and this is what it came up with) Dain Ironfoot (??)
The £99.99 set was called The Lonely Mountain, which comes with some kind of dragon thing (Smaug?) but it was not at the fair - it was instead represented by a red dragon from the Castle line. It comes with Bilbo and a few others.
Most of the audio is her demonstrating play features of the sets, not the figures ...
So there ya go, I hope that's helpful. I've certainly learnt a few lessons for next year.
